WATCH: Timothee Chalamet wins best male lead at the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards
Call Me By Your Name star Timothee Chalamet won the Best Male Lead at the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards earlier today in Santa Monica.
The 22-year-old actor beat out Get Out‘s Daniel Kaluuya, Beach Rats‘ Harris Dickinson, The Disaster Artist‘s James Franco, and Good Time‘s Robert Pattinson.
Timothee advocated for the continuation of independent films and said he would always continue to be a part of them: “I’m trying to really savor this moment. I don’t know if this thing’s ever really going to happen again, I hope it doesn’t sound cheesy when I say it, but I have a lot of faith. I have a lot of faith in this industry. I have a lot of faith in our country. I have faith because of Greta Gerwig and Luca Guadagnino and Josh Safdie and Jordan Peele and Daniel Kaluuya and filmmakers that aren’t here. … We’ve got a whole new wave. We’re going to be good.
